Hey Framer fam! Ryan Hayward here, and today I've got something special for you. I've uncovered 5 incredible Framer hacks that will not only save you time but also elevate your design game. Let's dive right in.

1. Keyboard Shortcuts

The first hack to reclaim your precious time is mastering Framer's keyboard shortcuts. From drawing frames to navigating tools, these shortcuts are your secret weapon. Pressing 'F' to draw a frame beats the mouse-click marathon, and 'Command + K' reveals a shortcut window with all the efficiency keys you need. Trust me, these time-saving tricks add up quickly.

2. Use Color and Text Styles

No more tedious colour-picking! Beginners, listen up. Say hello to color and text styles. Create styles for consistency and swiftly replace all instances of a color throughout your project. It's a game-changer, especially when you want a swift overhaul.

3. Start from a Template

Why start from scratch when you can leap ahead with templates? Templates not only offer pre-arranged layouts but also come loaded with essential functionalities. Need a navbar, or image gallery? Templates have your back. Customize them effortlessly to fit your brand without the headache of complex design.

4. Use Components

Components are your design superheroes. They bring reusability, consistency, and effortless updates to the table. Update a component, and voila! watch the changes ripple across your project. It's design magic that keeps your workflow smooth and future updates a breeze.

5. Get a Friend to Help

Why go solo when you can double your design speed? Collaborate with a friend on your Framer project in real-time. Divide and conquer, benefit from fresh perspectives, and overcome design blocks swiftly. Plus, it's a fun way to engage with the Framer community.
